i-TES designs and manufactures thermal accumulators which reduce energy consumption and environmental impact due to their modularity and flexibility. Furthermore, when integrated with renewable energy sources and different power generation machines, the accumulator maximizes the total system efficiency. Distributed heat leads to better control of consumption at the point of use.
Thermal accumulators are based on phase change materials (PCM) that are bio-based and derived from organic waste. By selecting and combining different types of PCM materials, the resulting system can store and release latent heat at desired temperatures.
i-TES technology provides a small-volume storage system, by reducing investment costs and the amount of raw materials. New research focuses on high-performance, low-cost thermochemical materials (TCM) to better control energy consumption. A first patent has been granted on a PCM-based device, while a key patent covering the new thermal storage battery is pending.
Team with strong technical experties. The i-TES product responds to the growing global demand for energy management. The energy storage system helps managing consumption peaks by providing additional energy when demand exceeds the standard supply. The company serves the thermal energy storage market, including the district heating, heat pump, fuel cell and solar battery segments.
